“Beautiful church”
Reviewed 30 July 2013

St. Francis is a well worked church in the heart of Melbourne, masses are held several times a day,it's always busy but not too busy for you to enjoy looking around.

“Beautiful building in the centre of Melbourne”
Reviewed 29 May 2013

We simply love the architecture of this old church. Went inside and was very impressed with everything about it. They had hourly services on the Sunday we were there. we went back on the Monday when it was a lot quieter but there were still people there deep in contemplation, so beautiful to see their faces deep in prayer and meditation, came out of there, feeling totally refreshed.. a lovely change from shopping in Melbourne!

“Beautiful Church - Lovely Service”
Reviewed 28 May 2013

Attended 8am Trinity Sunday mass at St Francis' Church. The priest gave the most articulate, and concise homily I've ever heard. It was good to see other holiday makers in the congregation. After the service I entered the Ladye Chapel (see attached photo). Next door to the Church is the Catholic Shop.

Is that a spelling mistake on the sign (see attached photo)?

“Packed Masses”
Reviewed 28 March 2013

I have just been to the Holy Thursday evening Mass for which the church was jam packed including many standees. It was a prayerful occasion with the talented St Francis' Choir and excellent organist adding much to the Celbration of (Christ's) last Supper.

The Ladye Chapel is indeed a beautiful place to pray.

It was a young congregation, full of Asian students who study in Melbourne but whose families live in Philippines, Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong, India, Taiwan and mainland China. Such a gathering brings home to me the universality of the Catholic Church. To be in one of Melbourne's first buildings of any significance adds to the occasion.
